Baruch College announced that “To date, we have seen no evidence that personal data has been extracted or compromised” by the malware attack in a mass email communication sent early Sept. 27. 

Baruch did not address when in-person learning will resume.

Baruch Computing and Technology Center worked with CUNY staff to address the issue. 

Campus servers are not yet restored, but Baruch said it’s “begun the process” of restoring them. 

BCTC did restore full access to the Baruch website and Baruch email for communicating outside of the college. 

Baruch also shared that it installed new software to protect the network. 

There are ten types of malware: viruses, worms, ransomware, bots, Trojan horses, keyloggers, rootkits, spyware, cryptomining malware and adware. 

Malware attacks can go undetected for an extended period of time. 

Baruch did not state what kind of malware attack occurred. It also did not state how long or to what extent the systems had been compromised, only that there is no evidence yet that personal data was compromised.
